Winter Tires

Does any one have a good recommendation for a 20" winter tire that fits the TI sport rims?

The only ones I have available at my local tire shop at the Nittos. Does anyone have any experience with the Conti/Michelin/Pirelli options?

Thanks

Would you consider buying a different set rims that are smaller? You can downsize which will give you more options for tires and in my opinion give you better performance in the snow.
The rims I’m buying are 18’s and I’m buying studded nokian hakkapeliitta tires. Nokian’s are fantastic in the snow. We have non studded hakkapeliitta on our other car and all I can say is WOW.

I've been thinking about getting a set of Nokian WR G3 SUV all weather tires and leaving them on year-round. Anyone have any first-hand experience with them?

Went to Costco today to order Blizzaks for my 19 wheel Stelvio. The tech said they could sell me the tires but could not mount them because the Stelvio requires a special adapter to put it on their lift. Anyone know what this is about?

I had mine done with a floor jack and the Stelvio has marked lift points and was very simple to do.

89 is the torque for the wheel and make sure to re torque it.

The TPMS resets all on its own so no need for any calibration tools.

Check the door sticker for inflation. I recall there was a difference from front to back by a PSI or two.

I ran Nokian WR tires year round on my 2000 Outback. Don't remember if they were G3 or something earlier. Anyway, I got good mileage out of them and they did fine in winter weather.

Quite a difference in handling between an Outback and a Stelvio. So I don't know how relevant my Outback experience would be.
